Tim Miles on state of Nebrasketball

Down as assistant, his leading scorer, a post presence, and a talented freshman, Nebraska head basketball coach Tim Miles isn't worried about the path his program is on.

LINCOLN, Neb. - For the first time since the Huskers were bounced in the Big Ten tournament, Nebraska head coach Tim Miles held a press conference with the local media on Monday.

After a season that didn't live up most expectations, multiple player departures, and an assistant coach leaving for New Mexico, many Nebraska fans are starting to worry about the direction of the program under Miles, despite the fact the Huskers made the NCAA tournament in year two.

Miles asked the question, what are fans worried about?

“When’s the last time Nebraska had one of the recruiting classes like this?” said Miles, “I think we’ve got a lot of young talent coming in. I think the guys we have in place know their role, know what they’re expected to do better than ever.

The Huskers signed five players in the 2015 class, highlighted by point guard Glynn Watson, who ranks as the nation’s No. 66 overall player by Scout.com. With the addition of potential all-conference performer forward Ed Morrow, Nebraska finished with a class that ended up just outside the Top 25 on Scout.com.

"I feel very good about it," said Miles.

Miles also has to feel good about Kansas transfer Andrew White, who will be eligible to play in 2015. By all accounts coming out of practice, White is a major threat from long range, which shouldn't be a surprise for those who scouted his high school career.
